Live at Wave Gotik Treffen
June 3, 2001
Surfaced May 20, 2018 (thank you, C + P!). Taped by scttrbrn. Lineage: SONY MZ-R30 + SONY ECM-TS 120 > Soundblaster Audigy2 via S/PDIF Optical Connector > WAV > Cool Edit Pro (Fading) > CDWav (Splitting)
The mix starts off sounding very distant, but changes at a few points, such as on track 5 around 1:22. Includes most of the German announcer intro, "Untitled" cuts out and seems to be edited.

This was Pierce Wyss’ first show with Coil; Massimo Villani apparently hadn’t entered the picture just yet, according to Claus Laufenburg. He, along with John Contreras, a cellist, were the half-naked male performers that I assume only came out with flowers towards the end of the show.
A German announcer introduces Coil. Apparently he says something like: “Finally, it is time. You all waited a long time in front of the stage, and so many…Simply enjoy what’s happening on stage right now. Exclusively tonight…Coil.”
As “Something” begins, John says, “I dedicate this concert to the moon, to the art of lunacy and magick, to the stag of the cabbages. I dedicate this concert to the moon.”
Before “Amethyst Deceivers,” John says, “They don’t keep goats in poppa pagodas.”
Before “Blood from the Air,” John says, “This next song is called ‘Blood from the Air,’ from an album called Horse Rotorvator, from a long, long time ago.”
Before “I Am the Green Child,” John says, “I am the Green Child. I am the Green Child.”
Before “Constant Shallowness Leads to Evil,” John says “This next song’s dedicated to Rose and Robert and to my friend in Thailand Mr. Bee. ‘Constant Shallowness Leads to Evil.’” Rose is Rose McDowall and Robert was her then-husband Robert Lee. Robert Lee’s band Sorrow, with Rose McDowall as a special guest, had played right before Coil at the concert.
Following the closing words from John at the end of the gig, which were “This was moon musick; this was magickal music. Thank you,” Thighpaulsandra continued with an apparently impromptu synth jam. It resembles “Beige, “Lowest Common Abominator,” and “Freebase Chakra” off of Constant Shallowness Leads to Evil.
